Manicure Monday: OPI Live.Love.Carnaval


Today's Mani Monday is another polish from the OPI Brazil collection which is absolutely perfect for warm, sunny weather or those dang lucky ones going on tropical Spring Break vacations. Live.Love.Carnaval is a really vibrant shade of hot watermelon which I somehow always find myself craving this time of year. 


 

If you picked up on my spring-breaker jealousy earlier it's because I first grabbed this color due to my friend (going on an envy-worthy trip to a place with white sand beaches) making a mani pit stop at my place. I knew this breed of neon was a bit out of her comfort zone but honestly, polish only lasts for a week on nails and turquoise beaches deserve a little brightness! Needless to say it looked awesome on her and her subsequent tan.


Here I applied a base of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 3 coats of Live.Love.Carnaval although 2 would've been fine, and topped it with Seche Vite. Can I say I love how chicklet-glossy the finished effect is? That look is the difference between 2 and 3 coats of polish. ;)


Overall, I really love Live.Love.Carnaval because it's more wearable than a shocking neon hot pink but still gives off that fun, summery effect. I loved it so much I've also been rocking a simultaneous fingertips-and-toes polish shade which rarely happens. Huge thumbs up from me!

Readers, do you have a favorite neon? Do you switch to brighter shades when the weather warms or are you more of a classic girl? Let me know in the comments!
